New Faculty

Provost Paula Myrick Short with Mascot ShastaWelcome to the University of Houston! We are delighted that you have chosen to join the Cougar community as a Powerhouse Faculty Member. We are excited about the experience, energy, spirit, and the particular strengths that you will bring to our teaching, research, and service activities. You will be joining faculty members that are leaders in their fields and that regularly make things happen — in the lab, in society, and around the world. In addition, UH faculty are simultaneously making things happen in every classroom, working closely with each student to open up new worlds and new possibilities.

New faculty orientation is one of the many ways that UH invests in your success. Our goal is to orient you to UH’s mission and share important information and resources. In addition, we have developed four video orientation modules that will assist you before you arrive. Links to the video modules are listed below. Please explore the orientation information and register as soon as possible. 

Again, welcome!
